You can exchange some of your English language lessons for lessons with your teacher based around a favourite sport or interest. Why not start a new hobby?
Perhaps, learn about English birds, their habitats and the countryside or you might like to share a passion for 60’s music or photography.
Alternatively are you interested in history, heritage or art? Why not see Britain by bike?
For example a 15 hour course could be split into 10 hours of language lessons and five hours with your chosen subject. Or 5 hours and 10 hours.
Subject could include:
- English cookery
- Painting & Sculpture
- Arts & crafts
- History, Heritage & People
- Bird Watching & the countryside
- Flowers & Gardens
- Political and economic history
Please ask if there is anything specific you would like to do and we will try to meet your requirements.
